Vacaville Unified leaders face a busy slate of agenda items, among them whether or not to appoint someone or hold a special election to fill a vacant trustee seat; approve or disapprove the re-opening of Sierra Vista as a K-8 school; and approve or disapprove a sizable contract for design and engineering services to modernize Willis Jepson Middle School.
The school board trustees will consider those items when they meet tonight.
Attorney Scot Yarnell — of the Sacramento law firm Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo — will advise the six-member governing board on the legal requirements for filling a trustee vacancy in the wake of Jeremy Jeffreys’ resignation on Sept. 3.
Under state law, the board has 60 days from that date to either order a special election or to make a provisional appointment.
